    Hi Moms and Dad.Love this site.? is, I have ADR at Tusker House at 4:45 on September 16. The Park closes at 5:00pm. Will we be able to enjoy dinner or will we be rushed to get out of the park and make the bus?

    You will not be rushed at all. When the park closes at 5:00, basically that means that this is the time that the rides and attractions stop accepting new guests. The restaurants will remain open until all guests are served their full meals in the appropriate Disney fashion. Many of the park shops will remain open for quite a while after the official park closing time to allow guests to  stock up on last minute souvenirs, etc.

    Also, the buses continue to run until all the guests in the parks are cleared and on their way, this always an hour after park closing time and often two hours after closing time. Don't worry, they will NOT leave you stranded at the park.

    I really enjoy the buffet at Tusker House. With the incredible variety of food there, from classic American favorites to unusual African specialties, there's something for everyone. I'm sure you'll have a great time there.
